The original Submarine Voyage debuted on June 14, 1959 and was one of the first “E” Ticket attractions. The attraction was loosely inspired by the 1958 voyage to the North Pole by the world’s first nuclear-powered submarine, the USS Nautilus, which coincidently was named after the fictional submarine in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The attraction enjoyed a 39-year run at Disneyland Park, setting sail for the last time on September 7, 1998. Then, in 2007, the attraction once again re-opened—as Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage. The submarines received new life, complete with a host of fishy faces from the classic Disney•Pixar film Finding Nemo.
